Today is Thursday 24th November

It was dry but cold this morning and even though we knew nothing would dry outside, we did the weekly wash anyway and went up to the launderette to use their dryer.
Hubby drove up and I walked Maya through the park. She was very good for me and was curious about a dozen or so ducks that cut across our path to the lake, but she made no effort to follow them.
No sign of Geraldine, so we like to think she flew off to pastures new rather than dwell on other alternatives.

Lost and Found

It hurt when he’d fallen, but no-one heard his cries. That’s the problem with being a Bear, they don’t think you have feelings or feel pain.
A Bear is a keeper of secrets, something a child will confide in, love to pieces, and choke when they cuddle tight.  A Bear is a companion, one who will never leave your side, a constant in the first few years of life.
Now he was here, alone, and no-one had missed him.

Friday Fictioneers 25th November

Rochelle Wisoff-Fields is our hostess for the Friday Fictioneers photoprompt and this week’s picture is provided by Sandra Crook.

I remember more green, she said.
Me too, but the pub is still the same.
The pink paint is new………
The beer’s the same though.
Bet the hot pot’s not.
Hmmm……….. steak and kidney pie.
Nah, I preferred the crab, freshly caught that morning.
Best fish and chips on the South Coast.
I still remember more green though.
Maybe they moved our table and we’re looking at it from a different angle.
Maybe………… or perhaps just tired eyes. It was fifty years ago.

Reader’s Interest

This week, Fandango says:
There was a time in my life when I was a voracious reader. Yes, reader, not eater. I was never a voracious eater. But I digress. My point is, in the days before the internet, before WordPress, before Facebook and Twitter and TikTok and YouTube and binge-watching on Netflix; in the days before having the world at you fingertips with newsfeeds on mobile phones, before…well you get my drift…I used to devour between three and five books a week. Mostly novels.

But these days, I don’t read books much anymore. Maybe I read three to five books a year, not three to five a week. But I don’t think I’m that unusual in that regard. Or maybe I am, which brings me to this week’s provocative question.

With all of the distractions mentioned above, do you read books as much nowadays as you used to ten, twenty, or thirty years ago? Why or why not?
Ah, my first honeymoon comes to mind:

Today is Wednesday 23rd November

The day started off horribly with heavy rain and grey skies but at least it wasn’t freezing cold, just a bit chilly. Luckily there was nothing we had to do or anywhere to be so we had a pretty lazy morning.
Good news is that I had a phone call offering me an ultrasound on Friday morning, and Hubby was able to reschedule his INR for the afternoon. Now all I need is a date for the MRI scan and they will be able to tell me what’s going on and how they can treat it.

The rain stopped at 11.45 so Hubby took Maya for a walk Continue reading
